October 31, 2010 - 3 Comments

Would you leave the windows to your house open? Or the front door wide open? In this weeks vodcast from Cisco ANZ’s Security lead Glenn Wellby, he explores how to recognise vulnerabilities on your network that are akin to leaving your house open for burglars.

With the amount of mobile devices, smart phones, blackberries, iPads and tablets that are connected to the network these days, stock standard firewalls and antivirus are often just not enough to thoroughly protect your digital assets.

Glenn explains that a sound security strategy for the network is very similar to how you protect your most valuable physical assets. So how do you replicate this for your most valuable digital assets?
